Who didn't love Theme Hospital? This is a more serious take

Cool. Theme Hospital was an epic classic game for the PS1. God it was so addicting but so time consuming.

Too serious.

Them Hospital was fun because it wasn't too serious.

I played some Theme Hospital years ago.

I wouldn't enjoy playing one of those games now, though. I have no interest in a hospital administrator sim.

Looks like I don't need to go to med school anymore! I'll just play this. :laugh:

But seriously, this looks like it could be a fun simulator.

I freaking loved Theme Hospital, and am defo going to end up sinking more time than is decent into this. Ive been craving something like SimCity lately, but this will be a great distraction!

I bet my wife would love this...
There you go, bringing her up again! It's nonstop with you, but luckily I can read between the liness.

So in answer to your implied question, yes, my hips are double jointed.

I went to download the game today, but I'm guessing it's not available yet?

Edit: available later this year...

Ah well. I kind of wish they had some silly diseases, as homage to Theme Ho.

I've just spent 40 minutes watching the videos of this! This is the game I wanted Project hospital to be!

Really looking forward to this. Have you played any of the Tropico games? I want something between this and SimCity to tide me over in the mean time.

Haha, timing! I just started playing it.

It's actually got pretty nifty graphics for a simple game. I can tell I'm going to sink too much time into this when I can't sleep.

I've been playing it a bit for two days now. It's pretty darn good, but there's a bunch of stuff that needs to be patched up.

If you enjoyed Theme Hospital, you'll love it.

Ok, a few of the bugs are game ruining. Save often. The game does have a tutorial, but it doesn't explain some important stuff.

For example, after a doctor sees a patient, he still has to come back after going to other diagnosis, so you can end up with cues of 30 people, even if you have 20 general consulting rooms. You're better off having 5 really good doctors, who diagnose the patient instantly.

Ghosts are a pain, and often get trapped in walls, and the only way to get rid of them, is to demolish the room, or move it (if you have room.) But doing the first one, gets rid of all your upgrades.


Also, once you get busy, ramp up your prices until you're hated.
